  • Directed HD radio support in Linux ?

    I'd like to buy a Directed HD radio for use with a Linux car pc.

    Does anyone know where to find the protocol for communicating with the radio ?

    Is there a Linux app somewhere for communicating with it ?

    I guess worst case I could snoop on the rs232 line(s) and see what goes back and forth between the head and the backend unit ????

    Thanks !

    Both RevFE and nghost have libraries built in to communicate with the Directed HD unit. Check the source code out to see the code for it.

    As for a dedicated app, I guess there's never really been any interest in an actual standalone app for it. Do you have any programming experience?

      Great, I'll check into the soruce- and those applications.

      I won't build a stand alone app just for it. I'm trying to emulate an OEM radio system and it will be part of it.

      I've done a lot of C programming. I've been looking for an excuse to get into Linux development.

      Thanks for the reply.

          that makes it pretty easy !

          i wonder if there is a document around to explain the interface as well ?

          thanks !

            Does anyone know if kradio works with this or is it a proprietary protocol.

              I would assume not, I highly doubt the radio is compatible with the Video4Linux protocol
